It's party time!
Let's take a break from travel posts to talk about fashion. Many fashion-related questions come up during this holiday season. I'm sure we all have a bunch of Christmas parties to attend and we want to make an impression with our look while wearing something appropriate for the occasion/code, am I right? Today I'm going to try to answer some of those questions.

I wear pretty much the same outfits for work and play. My style is feminine and sweet and my closet is full of timeless pieces. I believe that less is more and that it's all in the details. This outfit sums it up very well, it combines pearl earrings with bows and pom-poms. Plus, there's a mixture of pastel and neutral hues. Finally, it's perfect for any dress code.

How do you dress for an office holiday party?
In December, it’s common for companies to hold holiday work parties. Some of these are simple parties during the work day at the office, while others are more elaborate events after hours. Here in Spain the later is more common. You normally meet your co-workers for dinner and drinks around 9 pm.
If the party is during work hours, wear what you'd normally wear at work but dress it up a little or add some sparkle so that it's not the same old thing.
If the holiday party is after hours, let your hair down but not too much. At the end of the day, you are still going to see those people again!

Why you need a 10 piece capsule holiday wardrobe
Every year I try to incorporate a new timeless piece to my holiday wardrobe. That way you end up with lots of different combinations and therefore options.  This is what the perfect 10 piece capsule holiday wardrobe should include:
1. Invest on a coat that you save for special occasions. Capes and faux fur coats are my favorite at the moment.
2. A white silk blouse
3. Sequin skirt/dress
4. Cashmere sweater
5. Black pumps
6. Small bag
7. Velvet blazer
8. Suit pants
9. Something tweed
10. A dress/jumpsuit. I love dresses with lace details like this one.

  2. I am right there with you on those pieces for a holiday capsule wardrobe. I actually have quite a few pieces but could see where I could definitely use more! I love your cute pom sweater!

  3. Your coat is so cute! Such a nice shade of pink and the bows are adorable! :) I really like the fun pom poms on your top too, it's a fun detail!

    Hope that you are having a nice week so far! We took the kids out to a special snow event yesterday, it was a lot of fun, but so strange with the summer heat and humidity here in Brisbane, haha! :)

  13. Oh I would never think to do bows and pom poms together but this totally works. It looks great! And love the color of the coat. So cute, a head turner for sure. If it is NYE I usually go for sequins and black accents.
